Making yours more difficult to steal than others will help, but if they want it, they have already figured how they will.
I have added trackers to our trailer(s) that notify me if they are moved. LoJack is nice, but cost prohibitive for most non-commercial users.
This Trak-4 GPS tracker is pretty good and very reasonable cost in comparison. Less than $50 for the unit and only about $100+/- per year depending on your required frequency of update. You can change the frequency anytime you wish. You can choose from 1c per day to every minute if you want. Usually 1/hour is adequate.
You can also setup GeoZones around your location and get notified via text if the trailer is moved out of the zone. The battery is rechargeable with a phone USB cable or a aux phone battery. The battery however lasts a long time - at 6 months it’s usually around 60% remaining.
If the trailer is outside, it uses gps location - if inside, it uses cell tower triangulation.
Pretty decent tracker.
